Fall Pattern Showcase: Laurelhurst Wrap Cardigan

It's time for fall sewing and today is my stop on the Fall Pattern Showcase! 

It's not quite fall yet here. In fact, it's still quite warm. But a girl can dream, right. I have been working on my fall / winter wardrobe already and I made the Laurelhurst Wrap* from Straight Stitch Designs to carry me into fall.   It's perfect to wear for everyday, work, or even post-yoga. And guess what?! It's on sale! Through Sunday, September 20, the entire Straight Stitch Designs* store is marked down. Get all your patterns, including this Laurelhurst Wrap at 50% off. Or get a stitch kit, which includes everything you need to make your garment, at 40% off. !! 

The Laurelhurst Wrap is very easy to sew and easy to wear. It's an open, drape-y style cardigan that pairs well with skinny jeans or leggings. 

I made mine out of a lightweight french terry fabric that I have had in my stash. I had the fabric for a while, but wasn't quite sure what to do with it and this was perfect. This is a great project for any of those knits that might be too thin or unstructured for other garments (Knitfix, I'm looking at you). You can use almost any stretchy fabric for these.

I made exactly zero changes to the pattern and it fits great just like it is. I made a straight-up size 2 according to my measurements. I am petite (5'2), so the cardigan might be longer on me, but I like the coverage in the back.

And here is my comfy wrap post-yoga workout, paired with my new Sloan Leggings*:
